With the aim to strengthen and support media in the North African Region through knowledge production, the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung (RLS) North Africa Office is seeking to contract a media to produce specific issue on climate change in Morocco.
Located at the northern end of the African continent, Morocco is recognized by international organizations as a “climate hotspot” and is particularly affected by climate change induced by the major polluting powers.
In fact, Morocco is one of the most water-poor countries in the world, rapidly approaching the absolute water shortage limit of 500 cubic meters of water per person per year. Moreover, the current frequent and severe droughts are a major source of economic fluctuations and threaten the food sovereignty of Moroccans. In addition, sea levels are changing significantly, leading to increased flood risks in coastal areas, which are home to over 65% of the population and over 90% of industrial activity.
It is therefore important to assess and analyze the climate change situation and report on its immediate effects on nature and on the men and women in Morocco’s disadvantaged regions. It is also important to understand the commitments made by Morocco at the various COPs and to assess their relevance to the country’s current and future situation.
